The Space

Please, before booking check availability and prices by message. For some dates it is possible that there is going to be packages with different prices and conditions.
This charming and spacious apartment will accommodate up to 10 people. Recently renovated and beautifully decorated, it boasts 3 bedrooms, a large living and dining room, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen. The back entrance is served by another elevator, and includes an quaint passageway that is shared with my other rental apartment. My second rental apartment, which you can find here, has an area of 100 sq. meters (1000 sq. feet).

For sleeping arrangements one of the bedrooms features 4 twin beds, another a queen and twin beds and the third one a double bed. The living room includes a beautiful day bed. All beds have real matresses.

Prior to your arrival the apartment is thoroughly cleaned, all beds made with carefully washed and ironed sheets and blankets, and clean bath towels are provided.

Guest Access

Free Internet, WiFi (10Mb) and cable TV.
All bedrooms have air conditioner.

Access to the second bathroom is through the first bathroom or the back passageway.

Interaction with Guests

I like to be present at your check in so I can give you more information and details about the apartment, but if that is not possible, my assistant or doorman will give you the keys, and I will met you another time. The same thing for check out. I will be just a phone call away should you require any assistance during your stay.

The Neighborhood

The Posto 6 area is one of the best areas in Rio. This street in particulary is awesome because it comunicates the beatifull Arpoador beach (wich is the end of Ipanema beach) to the begining of Copacabana beach. From the Arpoador rock you can see the magnificent sunset, and from the Copacabana Fort, located in this street, you can see Copacabana bay, and in the other side the opened sea of Ipanema.Stunning view!

This charming apartment is located in an excellent area, surrounded by beaches, trees and all the excitement of Copacabana. One of the first to be built in this neighbourhood, the building boasts a solid structure and excellent maintenance and security, and is served by 2 elevators. With the Copacabana beach half a block away, and the Ipanema beach about 2 blocks away, you will literally be a few steps from the 2 most famous beaches in the world, with 8km of sea, sand, restaurants, kiosks and the famous "calcadao"!

Getting around

The building is conveniently located close to buses, shops, grocery stores and a mere 50m away from the Copacabana beach and 100m away from the Ipanema beach! Enjoy, have a good trip and an even better stay!

Our street, as well as nearby streets, has several bus stops including one for the airport bus a few steps away. The nearest subway station is "General Osorio", which is 7 blocks away. There is also a taxi stop a block away.

Other Things to Note

For reservations less than 4 days long, there will be a R$200,00 extra fee.
Originally, this was all one large area which I divided into two separate and private apartments, and only the back passageway is shared. Both apartments have their own private entries.
Stays less than 8 nights bedsheets will not be changed. Bath Towels: 1/person/5 days.
Toilet paper: 2 for each bathroom any stay long. Soap: 1/ bathroom, any stay long.
I leave for your arrival: mineral water, coffee, salt, sugar. This is only small quantity, if it ends guest is responsable for buying the amount for their use.
Please note that there will potentially be some noise during the day due to construction of a new building nearby. However, this should not in any way affect the quality of your stay and I installed anti noise windows so the noise is insignificant. If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact me.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our travel arrangements had us arriving and departing at oddball times. Heloisa went out of her way to store our luggage 6 hrs before check-in and ensured we were safely on our way in the wee hours of the morning a few days later. The accommodations were spacious and comfortable and the location provided easy access to the beach (100 m) and dozens of shops and restaurants (within walking distance). The building has a watchman and is gated. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. Great job Heloisa.

  • This truly is a charming place in an amazing location. We walked only 5 minutes every day to eat breakfast on Copacabana beach. The bedrooms are comfortable and the living room is inviting. Best of all, Heloisa was very accessible. She was helpful and accommodating with all of our requests. I only wish we had more time to spend in Rio.

    July 2014
  • We stayed here during world cup for 2 weeks. We were a big group and could use two apartments of Heloisa as one big apartment.

    These two apartments are very convenient and comfortable, because they have enough rooms/beds/kitchens etc, they are located in wonderful place between Ipanema and Copacabana, there are a lot of banks/restaurants/supermarkets etc around them, and so on.

    In addition, the most important point was that Heloisa was a wonderful host for us. When we need her help and support, we always could communicate with her very easily as if she stood by us.

    Finally, we could have wonderful vacation at her apartments. Greatest thanks to Heloisa. We are sure that we stay at her apartments again when we come back to Rio, maybe in 2016 for Olympic games???

  • Muy bueno! cómodo, de buena calidad, muy bien decorado. La zona es muy buena y queda cerca de todo (Copacabana e Ipanema). Llegamos con el bus del aeropuerto a 100 metros y nos fuimos con el mismo bus a 50 metros. Seguramente volveremos!

My name is Heloisa, I was born in Rio 51 years ago. As a good "carioca" I just love this city, the beautiful blue sky, the colour of the sea and the sand of the beaches. Rio has a spectacular natural beauty and invites us to stay outdoors to know its charming neighborhoods, or just walk looking at the mountains... It is a pleasure for me having guests from all over the world in my apartment, being part of their stay in this amazing city, helping them to have the most wonderful time here, full of excellent moments! I'm a simple person with simple habits. Love spending time with my pets, to take care of them. I like going to the beach early in the morning, like to go to shopping centers, to walk in Ipanema, and to go out for dinner once in a while. I like photography too. Once a year I travel, I love New York and go there often when I can. Sometimes I go to Europe, because I lived in Portugal and Paris, and still have good friends there. In both continents I booked with airbnb! Recently my new hobby has become receiving my guests, making arrangements so they have a good, confortable stay at my place. In general I'm a person that tries more and more each day to listen carefully to her heart! Be welcome!
